Glasurit coatings successful at Rally Dakar 2018


At this year’s Rally Dakar, coatings of Glasurit proved that they can withstand even the extreme conditions of the toughest race in the world. To master the challenges of a race that stretches the material to its limits, the Russian KAMAZ Master Team relied on Glasurit products.

This year, the team from Russia won the title for the thirteenth time. The partnership with the KAMAZ Master Team boosts Glasurit’s brand awareness on the Russian commercial vehicle market.

The partnership between the KAMAZ Master Team and the Automotive Refinish business unit of BASF in Russia is based on the successful cooperation of both teams: “We both strive to be the best in everything we do: the KAMAZ Master Team in the Rally, and the Glasurit team in the market for commercial vehicle refinish paint systems,” said Andrey Artamonov, Head of Business Management Commercial Vehicles at BASF.
